Kristijan Fris

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Kristijan Fris (born April 21, 1984 in Senta ) is a Serbian wrestler .


Kristijan Fris comes from Senta in Vojvodina and belongs to the Hungarian minority there. He started wrestling in 1996 as a teenager. He became a member of the wrestling club Ravni Klub Proleter Zrenjanin , one of the leading clubs in Serbia . So far, he has been trained by the coaches Szabo, Pak and Sandor Nando . Traditionally, the best wrestlers in the country came from Vojvodina back in the days of Yugoslavia.

At a height of 1.68 meters, he wrestles in the bantam weight, the lightest weight class (up to 55 kg body weight (KG)) and only in the Greco-Roman style. Because of the political events in the former Yugoslavia , he started for Yugoslavia until 2002, for Serbia and Montenegro from 2003 to 2007 and since 2007 for Serbia .

He began his career on the international wrestling mat in 2000 when he took part in the European Junior Championships (Cadets) in Bratislava . He came in 13th place in the class up to 46 kg body weight. At the European Junior Championships in Subotica in 2002 , he won a medal in the weight class up to 50 kg for the first time at an international championship, the bronze. After a respectable 7th place at the Junior World Championships 2003 in Istanbul , where he won three fights before he was eliminated by the Iranian Hamid Bavafa, he achieved the greatest success of his junior time at the 2004 Junior European Championships in Murska Sobota became junior European bantamweight champion ahead of Gegam Sadajan from Russia and Daniel Krymow from Ukraine .

In 2004 Kristijan Fris tried to qualify for participation in the Olympic Games in Athens in Novi Sad . However, as a relatively inexperienced young wrestler, he failed in this project because he only came in 19th place. At the Senior European Championships in 2005 in Varna he reached a good 5th place in bantamweight and was the same year winner of the Mediterranean Games in Almería in bantamweight before the Egyptian Mohamed Moustafa Abu Elela.

After weaker results at the 2005 World Cup and the 2006 international championships, Kristijan Fris's big breakthrough came in 2007. He first won the European Championship bronze medal at the European Championships this year in Sofia with a victory in the decisive fight against the Finn Ville Kaeki and secured the same medal at the World Championships in Baku in autumn 2007 . He won there u. a. also over the young German Florian Crusius and won after a defeat in the semifinals against the Iranian Hamid Soryan Reihanpour in the fight for the World Cup bronze medal over the US-American Lindsey Durlacher . With this 3rd place he had already qualified for participation in the Olympic Games in Beijing .

In Beijing he came in bantamweight with victories over Juri Kowal from Ukraine, a defeat against Nasir Mankijew from Russia, the later Olympic champion , a victory over Ildar Hafizow, Uzbekistan and another defeat against the 2007 world champion Hamid Sorjan Reihanpour on a good 7 . Space.

In 2009 Kristijan Fris also took part in the European Championships in Vilnius and lost his first bantamweight fight there against the Russian Bekchan Mankijew . Since this did not reach the final, he had to retire and only came in 19th place. He didn't fare any better at the 2009 World Cup in Herning / Denmark either, because he lost his first fight against Virgil Munteanu from Romania and only finished 27th.
